The ‘King of Whisky’, Royal Salute, is an exceptionally crafted and aged Scotch whisky, starting where most others end at a minimum of 21 years. Created in 1953 in tribute to the British Crown, the first flagons were produced to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, which was honoured with a traditional 21 gun salute. This legacy lives on today as Royal Salute continues to celebrate the extraordinary with whiskies fit for royalty, and the occasions that befit them.
